A mini-break at Ystad Saltsjöbad? – yes please…

MG_2314.CR2-3559210542-O

I’m in the need of a fall mini-break abroad. We didn’t leave the country during our fall vacation, and I’m beginning to feel an itch to get the h*** out of here. I need some peace around me to recharge my batteries. Otherwise, I don’t think I’ll make it till the Christmas break 😉

Therefore, I found myself browsing the internet for places to go in November. Normally, we would go to Hamburg this time of year, but due to different circumstances, we’ll stay home this year.

But I’m thinking more along the lines of a spa break. I’ve been seeing lots and lots of pictures of what looks like amazing hours spend at Ystad Saltsjöbad. I would love to go there with my husband and just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. A dinner for two, without nonstop questions being asked by one of the kids wouldn’t be half bad either. Then a quick stop in Malmö on the way home for a bit of shopping and a good cup of coffee. Well, I don’t know about you, but it sounds like the perfect mini-break to me?

The big question now is wether or not to buy it right this minute? Or should I wait and then put it under the Christmas tree for the one I love. Actually, I’m finding it hard to decide right now. Either way, a trip in the fall season or the winter season – well it all sounds fantastic to me. I’ll ponder about if for a few days, but one thing I’m sure about is the fact that it has to be for two nights.  A long weekend would be just perfect. If you fee like a mini-break as well, check out the different deals right here. In the meantime, I’ll try and get my head around some Christmas presents, and then I’ll know what to do.

Urban Shopping with a tween

Shopping, shopping and more shopping. Later this year we’re going to Copenhagen with the kids. The first thing my daughter said was YES! then we can go to Urban Outfitters. She loves the store and she could easily buy the first 100 items there.

To kill time we hit the online shop for inspiration – and then she could make a wishlist of the things she would like to buy. Truth be told, I kind of like some of the things as well, so I don’t mind going in there with her, and a few of the things could end up on my wishlist as well. It’s the perfect mother-daughter store if you ask me. It’s not the clothes we’re after, but it’s the Home & Gifts section.

Getting ready for winter – mom edition

Today, I’m getting ready for winter – it’s the mom edition. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone, when it comes to being last in line, when it’s time to buy practical stuff like warm clothes for the winter? I’ve made sure that the kids will be fully dressed and ready for winter – check out my kids edition from last week – and now it’s my turn.

What to add this year?
This year I need to add a few things to my wardrobe. I’ve got the basics covered. An okay winter jacket – even though it’s a few years old, I’ve got warm boots as well. However, I would love to upgrade just a bit. I want to add both practical pieces, which I know will keep me warm and dry, but I also want them to look good. That’s the eternal problem, if you ask me.

My Etsy finds

On this wonderful Sunday, I’ve picked out a few cool finds, which I’ve found in different Etsy shops. This time I’ve selected things I would love to add to our own home. You can never get too many mugs, and the But first coffee mug, would be a cool mug for an office. I’m still adding plants to our home, and I loved the set of hex spora at first sight. Also, I’m never able to find doormats that I like, but the sparkle one is actually quite perfect.

I’ve been thinking about knitting a large blanket like the grey one. But I’m more tempted to buy it this time, and start knitting something else instead. The pillow case and the picture would look good in my cozy corner.

Picking out clothes with your tween – a wishlist

I mentioned earlier that my little girl turns 10 years old this month. She’s starting to care more about which clothes we buy, and she likes to try out different outfits. It’s so adorable seeing her grow in size, but also as a person.

Clothes girl

I’ve collected a few pieces of clothing from her wishlist, all of which she carefully picked out herself.

1. Blouse with lots of stars from Petit by Sofie Schnoor
2. Nitela limited slim fit jeans from Name it
3. Cloud bag from Zara
4. Cool ‘leather’ jacket from Zara
5. Misty grey Alaine jeans from Molo
6. Cool black boots with some pretty cool details from Zara
7. Peggy Knit from Soft Gallery
8. Super cute bag from Zara – I might have to get one for myself as well

A Hamburg state of mind

I’m in a Hamburg state of mind and I cannot wait to visit the amazing city again soon. This time I’ll introduce my 7 year old girl to the city.

This would be my ultimate collection of great things to pack – except for the concrete diamond of course. But it just reminds me of Hamburg. In many ways Hamburg is just that – an beautiful diamond made of concrete.
